The OWSD Early Career Fellowship es un prestigioso premio de hasta USD 50,000 ofrecido a mujeres que han completado sus doctorados en Ciencias, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas (STEM) y están empleadas en un instituto de investigación académica o científica en una de las listas Países rezagados en ciencia y tecnología (STLC). The OWSD Early Career fellows will be supported to establish an environment at their institution where they can maintain an international standard of research and attract scholars from all over the world to collaborate.
The OWSD Early Career Fellowship programme is administered by OWSD with funds generously provided by the Centro Internacional de Investigación para el Desarrollo (IDRC), Canada.
The fellowship programme supports early career women scientists to lead important research projects in those countries which have been identified as especially lacking in scientific and technological resources.* The fellows will undertake their research projects in one of the eligible countries and applicants must demonstrate that they have spent significant periods of time in that country (at least 5 years in total). Applicants must also have a guarantee of employment at the institution where they intend to carry out the research.
During the 2-year fellowship, fellows will build on their leadership and management skills, develop connections with a variety of public and private sector partners to potentially convert their research into marketable products or guarantee its impact on a broader scale. By improving their communication and outreach skills, fellows will also learn to effectively present their research to various audiences, thus attracting new collaborators and potential funders to ensure the sustainability of the research project.
By supporting 60 Early Career fellows by December 2021, OWSD will create a network of outstanding women scientists who can provide mentorship and be role models for the next generation of women leaders in STEM.
* as defined by the TWAS-OWSD Coordinating Committee.
